The team of Firmo Construction is celebrating the wane of summer and imminent season upon us by expanding its commercial construction operations with the opening of a new office location, in addition to its headquarters on N Orange Ave., Sarasota. The commercial construction management firm began almost 20 years ago in downtown Sarasota, and has since expanded its reach across Florida’s Southwest region and Gulf Coast—working on projects in Tampa Bay all the way to Fort Myers and Naples.

"With the expansion of our team to more than double its size and an increase of projects over the past year, as well as the relationships and partnerships we continue to cultivate, Firmo has experienced substantial growth along the Gulf Coast,” says Eric Collin, president and owner of Firmo. “As a result, I’m excited to share we’re expanding our operations with an additional office in Fort Myers to further service our clients' needs as we grow.” Firmo’s new office is located in the historic Earnhardt building on First Street in the River District of downtown Fort Myers. 

Along with spreading its bandwidth in reach and location, Firmo has also hired Business Development Manager, Jerry Miller, who’s focus will be on strategic growth and client outreach in the area. Miller is a resident of Fort Myers who is heavily involved in the regional community, serving on the Fort Myers Economic Development Advisory board and collaborating with city boards and city staff on urban revitalization projects. 

Known for its innovative and sustainable builds—such as the expansion of Rosemary Square in downtown Sarasota, the first LEED Certified Hampton Inn & Suites building in the world by SRQ International Airport, and the conversion of Fort Myers’ Hotel Indigo into a Tapestry Collection by Hilton—the company has been recognized as the 35th fastest growing company in the Gulf Coast and has ranked among the Top 500 companies in the region for three years in a row.

"Another element to this expansion from a broader perspective is that not only does this additional location signify growth for us and our clients on an individual basis, but it also demonstrates resilience, positive growth and success on an industry-wide level," says Heather Gilpatric, business development manager. "Real estate and construction are highly in demand in Florida right now, and we're thrilled to have the personnel, expertise and partnerships to be a part of that."

The additional office location’s address is, 2256 First St. #110 Fort Myers, 33901. Firmo's Sarasota office will continue to be its headquarters.
